North Alabama Nurse Practitioner Association
“Improving Health Care Through Education and Service”


Posted over 4 years ago by Janiece Smith

On behalf of the NANPA symposium committee, I would like to invite all members to help us make our Annual Clinical Symposium in 2016 the best one yet. We have reviewed all the feedback from our 2015 Symposium and we received great feedback. This was accomplished with your help. You are invited to submit speakers and outlines for consideration. This will open uppossibilities for more diverse topics and more nurse practitioner presentations. The ideal topic is one that has not been covered in the last 2-3 years, includes new practice topics or updated practice points, and is able to reach a broad audience. Please see the list of topics from last two years as listed below for reference.

If you, or someone you know, would like to be considered, please submit your topic, speaker, contact information and outline by Monday, February 8, 2016. Once all are submitted, the committee will review them, along with others we have collected, and put together the program with your wants/needs in mind. All speakers/submissions will be notified when the speaker program is finalized.

Thank you for helping make our symposium a continued success!

NANPA President and Symposium Coordinator
